Angels We Have Heard on High

 

Verse 1:

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o’er the plains,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.

 

Chorus:

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

 

Verse 2:

Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

 

Repeat Chorus...

 

Verse 3:

Come to Bethlehem and see

Christ Whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee,

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

 

Repeat Chorus...

 

Verse 4:

See Him in a manger laid,

Whom the choirs of angels praise;

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,

While our hearts in love we raise.

 

Repeat Chorus...
